Sportster Bobber Project

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

I turned down a rail job the other day because the guy didn't have the money to build new but wanted me to patch up the old ones that were from the 50's and a tree had fallen on them. Rusted and painted with a paintbrush. I just had other stuff to do than to do that and get penny pincher to where I wouldn't make anything. My conscious wouldn't be right installing fixed crap that looked like crap before I fixed it.

Sounds like a good call, no need for that headache or the liability

To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing...sounds boring to me
